    I think eggs contain around 9g of fat per one. I don't eat eggs personally but im sure i have seen that around the forums before. Goodluck with your journey :p

    Cheers guys i think ill stay clear of eggs then lol is it all fat that i have to make sure i eat less than 5g or just saturated fat im confused the doctor hasnt really given me any advice it was just like heres the perscription and go on their website but thats no use either i thought it would give a list of things that you might normally not be aware of being high in fat such as prawns i never knew that they were high in fat till my doctor told me !!

    Prawns are not high in fat ! Tell your Dr he is not a nutritionalist lol Prawns have approx 1.7g fat per 100g hun.
    On Xenical, the recommended guidelines are food should be no more than 5% fat ( that is 5g of TOTAL FAT CONTENT per 100g food product) and that your meals should contain no more than 15g of fat.
    The best thing to do is get used to reading labels, yep makes shopping a long longer and time consuming, but its also a real eye opener in to what we put into our shopping baskets and ultimately into our mouths.

    i take both into consideration such as :
    100gs:
    Fat 1.2
    Saturated 0.8

    to me i'd include them both
    :) .. yeah doctors aren't that good with the information!

    Good tip for meals on the night.. WW Meals!

    After a few weeks you will get that use to reading the packets it will become natural :)

    Same here !

    I also started xenical on wednesday,:rolleyes:
    My doctor told me to start with one a day for two days then move onto two for two days then three ! So far I have had no side effects so i must be doing well ! (apart from wind which i had anyway)
    Tonight however its going to be difficult, because we always have a kebab with chips every friday night along with some booze. For me it kind of confirms the end of the week,to seperate it. I cant stop thinking about it and have just had a fat free yoghurt which has done no good my thoughts of chips are winning.Maybe I should just go for it tonight and start again tommorow?:confused:

    1 banana 1 tangerine and a muller light youghut
    lunch i had a philidelphia light with marmite on weight watchers bread and a tangerine
    and for tea i had
    a batcholours pasta in sauce made with skimmed milk and philidelphia light with a muller light youghurt and jelly
    is this right is it enough im so confused ???

    Hiya - I'm pretty new to this too I started on Monday, so am just figuring it out like you! I think your food looks OK but I'm sure someone who knows more will be along before too long to let you know.

    To get a goal ticker - I got mine from www.tickerfactory.com or you can just click on someones and it takes you to the website they've got it from.

    Glad you're doing well - I've had a little bit of side effects this morning but completely my own fault as I ate a Kitkat chunky!

    Good luck for your first official weigh in, mine is MOnday too so I'll be comparing with you :) xx

    Your Doc was on about prawns containing high amounts of cholesterol - the little b*gg**s!!!
    Doesnt do much to change our cholesterol levels though........Saturated fat is the culprit.
    See the British heart foundation website.

    I have a full roast every sunday. No problems :) Sweets tend to be low in fat but very high in sugar. A very nice treat i sometimes have is sugar free sweets from morrisons like strawberry and cream things. :) Great for sucking on and there is nothing in them
